Gaming – looking beyond consoles

Just got wind of a new website launching this winter that gaming industry experts feel will be a real threat to consoles. The start-up, OnLive has created a console-less gaming system in which gamers can use their broadband connections to stream on-demand games from the likes of EA, Ubisoft and Atari to their computers or TV.


The site will also be community based, offering multiplayer gaming, sharing clips of gaming highlights (”brag clips”), and watching real-time game play. The platform will be offered through a monthly subscription plan, and expected to be competitively priced to retail. It’ll be interesting to see how gamers will receive the site once it is launched.

What do you think?
